9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.14 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very good, almost perfect single grain. Sweet but not tame and full of flavor.
    • Nose
      Lots of oak, a surprising fruitiness, coconut, vanilla, chestnut honey.
    • Taste
      Oak, coconut and vanilla in the mouth, accompanied by a certain acidic freshness of the oak.
    • Finish
      Oak, vanilla, a few spicy, tart notes, otherwise menthol and a nice sweetness.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A good, solid grain, very pleasant, without really being 'mindblowing'. The smell is slightly behind the taste / body.
    • Nose
      Initially sweet and slightly smelled, after about an hour the glue air is completely gone: sweet remains, vanilla, and also got strong associations with rum. Smell is not very emphatically present.
    • Taste
      Reasonably strong due to somewhat higher Abv, but still very friendly. Sweet, vanilla, toffee, caramel, milk chocolate. After a while more and more sweetness of sweets or gumballs.
    • Finish
      Now a light pepper, reasonably long, sweet weather, vanilla, caramel. Wood influences. And again later that sweetness of candy / gumballs.

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Odor:
    (half hour left) Fruity, banana, dried kiwi and citrus. Hint of grass and light woody.

    Taste:
    Sweet as in liquorice. Vanilla and bourbon influences. More bourbon influences, even more bourbon influences. Wood

    Body:
    Silky soft, but not so much creamy or oily (chill

    Finish:
    Medium length. Ginger, sweet bourbon influences. Woody and attracts something sour.

    Comment: There was still a liter or a bit of bourbon in the barrel according to me. 88 points, because I thought it was very nice. Had this whiskey been fuller and fatter it was certainly 90ptn.

  6. fgg scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A spicy dram with a very spicy character. Not one that you tick ff. Complex.
    • Nose
      After pouring: Glue, but less than with the previous samples. Vanilla, some banana. I smell something sharp, pepper or something. After an hour and a half: Still a strong nose. Spicy. Pepper, cloves, nutmeg, something like that
    • Taste
      After pouring: Troublesome. You can taste the pepper. Complex taste. After an hour and a half: Strong, sharp, spicy. Spicy dram.
    • Finish
      After pouring: Medium After an hour and a half: Medium to long.
